Graham Smith told Express.co.uk that the Royal Family’s HRH titles are complete fiction and compared them to playground dress-up. Republic is an organisation that campaigns for the monarchy to be abolished and the Queen to be replaced as head of state.
Mr Smith said: “The HRH thing is nonsense anyway.
“It is complete fiction…it is all just dress-up and playground stuff.
“They are trying to give each other special titles to make themselves feel important.
“If having a HRH title means you’re on the public payroll then take it away from all of them and stop giving them silly titles when they are born.”

Mr Smith also told Express.co.uk that stripping the young royals of their titles will allow them to enjoy their lives as private citizens.
The Republic CEO said: “I think there is an opportunity to say we do not need to keep handing out these titles.
“William’s children can go off and do what they want to do, they are going to be well into their adulthood by the time their dad dies and George has the chance to be King.
“They should just be left to lead their own lives in privacy and enjoy themselves as private citizens.”
“The Queen has granted this status to a number of royals, most of whom represent her. To claim that it lacks meaning is untrue.
“Republic cannot understand that royalty has a unique cachet and that titles such as HRH, which have historical precedents, have considerable meaning.
“Harry and Meghan were told that as they were stepping down as senior working royals, that they could keep their HRH but not use it.
“There is still controversy over Diana’s loss of her HRH.”
